Enabling VR and Focal Boxes'

Postby AlexReynolds1 » Tue Oct 23, 2018 4:50 am

Wounding if there's anyway possible to have VR enable through some sort of script in P3D so the user won't need need to navigate the menu system?

Also, has anyone found away to allow focal points to show up correctly in VR ?

Cheers,
Alex

Hey Alex...:)

Didn't know that Focal Points were an issue in VR, do they not render at all?

Hi David,

They render, however they render in a different spot in each eye, making it very confusing when viewing through the VR headset.

Hello,

You can enable VR on startup by setting EnableVirtualRealityOnStartup=1 in the Prepar3D.cfg.

Which version of Prepar3D are you running? I am not seeing this issue in 4.3.

Have you gone through the general debugging steps?
